This seems to be a common point of debate for me lately. I was always of the understanding that first generation implied being born here.

Does that mean you'd want me there if you could make it happen?

I'm such a mut racially that I'm not even sure what to call myself besides a designer breed

I couldn't have done anything that bad, I mean they let priests into Catholic curches

There's a lot of debate about that in general. I consider myself first-gen, as in first generation of Americans in my family. My children will be the first American-born generation, and they can reword that however they want to.

I don't think I've ever starched a piece of clothing. Not even sure what that would entail
